Kristin Walther, a junior at Washington High School, was recently approved as a 2016 Congressional Award Gold Medalist.
Walther was one of four recipients from the Third Congressional District in Missouri, joining Kaitlynn Allen and Edayla Tally, both from Union High School, and Joel Ian Moss from School of the Osage High School.
“I learned about this through the Girl Scouts. I put in many hours of volunteer service over the last couple of years,” Walther said. “I knew I had done everything necessary, but I was still a little surprised.”
The Congressional Award is the United States Congress’ award for young Americans. It is non-partisan, voluntary, and non-competitive.
The program is open to all 14- to 23-year-olds; young people may register when they turn 13 1/2 years old and must complete their activities before their 24th birthday.
Participants earn Bronze, Silver and Gold Congressional Award Certificates and Bronze, Silver and Gold Congressional Award Medals.
Each level involves setting goals in four program areas; volunteer public service, personal development, physical fitness, and expedition/exploration. You move at your own pace - on your own or with your friends. This is not an award for past accomplishments. Instead, you are honored for achieving your own challenging goals after registering for the program.
Kristin and the other award winners will be recognized in June in Washington, D.C. She will make the trip with her parents, Matt and Jorjann Walther.
Leading up to becoming a gold medalist, Kristin also has received the Congressional Award Bronze and Silver medals.
In addition to her participation in the Girl Scouts, Kristin also is a volunteer with the Humane Society. She's a member of the choir and orchestra at WHS.
